Imperial Units

A detailed explaination

What are they?

Imperial units are a type of unit that we still use! Not a commonly as metric but we still use them.

Metric units are Centimetres and millilitres, Imperials are Pints, Feet, Gallons and Miles. Britain still has not fully adopted the Metric system or the Imperial system as we still use both. Inother countries like Australia, Metrication is almost complete
